The easy way to test an application is to make a simple command line version . You can find the code at

You can run also with Docker by running

What were the steps ?

1. Install the @types/node, ts-node , typescript and others – see

2. Create an index.ts with the required CLI ( hint: prompt, figlet, chalk , username , inquirer,console.table are good to have) – read

3. Created an async main() and calling with

(async () => {
  try {
      await main();
        } catch (e) {


4. Modify package.json  to have

“main”: “dist/index.js”,

“types”: “dist/index.d.ts”,

“scripts”: {

“start”: “ts-node index.ts”,

“build”: “tsc”,

“compile”: “tsc”


5. Put in the root package

“scripts”: {

“test”: “cd bingo-meeting-objects-test && yarn test”,

“runConsole”: “cd bingo-meeting-console && yarn start”


and then run yarn runConsole

I can say that the C# console experience is better 😉
